Where you’ll be

Tawharanui Peninsula, Auckland, New Zealand

Baddeleys Beach is a very small, quiet beach at the end of a short sealed road and most of the properties are holiday homes so outside holiday periods it is especially peaceful. There is a large reserve with 2 tennis courts, a petanque court, toilets, picnic tables, a children's playground, and a boat ramp. The beach is tidal with scenery changing by the minute and a multitude of bird life. Swimming is best one hour either side of high tide.
There are several deeper water beaches close by.

I am an active mature woman with 3 adult daughters, a 3 year old grandson, 10 month old grand daughter and a 7 year old spoodle called Teddy. I work part time with disabled adults and in my spare time I love to visit art galleries, go to the movies, read books and sing. I am a keen volunteer at Tawharanui Regional Park near my home. This is a large open sanctuary with beautiful walks and beaches and a fence across the peninsula creating a predator free environment where the wildlife, mostly native birds, can thrive. I live right on a small beach, Baddeleys Beach, less than a minute from the water with only two other permanent residents in the bay. The environment is teeming with bird life and incredibly tranquil. It's also only an hour's drive from Auckland central, where my elderly mother and 2 of my daughters live, so close to family, friends and also the attractions of Auckland city. I have travelled extensively in New Zealand, Australia, Europe and the United States. My last big trip was to France, where I spent a year travelling around and staying in small gites. I loved meeting lots of wonderful people and a bonus was learning to speak French 'assez bien'. I enjoyed being immersed in the culture of the country and also telling people about my beautiful homeland. More recently I was fortunate enough to complete a wonderful bucket list trip to Egypt and Jordan just before coronovirus changed our lives. At the time I didn't realise just how lucky I was. I love travelling but whenever I get home I always feel as though I am returning to a special paradise and this time especially Baddeleys was a wonderful haven to return to.

During your stay

I enjoy meeting guests and will endeavour to meet you on your arrival if possible. It is also helpful if you can meet Teddy so he knows you are invited guests.
I am very happy to talk to you about places to visit and dine. There is also a comprehensive written guide and brochures in the suite. I will take my lead from you, realising that some guests prefer not to interact with their host.
If you need to contact me during your stay, just knock on the entrance sliding door or the front deck door. If I am not home, the best contact is the airbnb message board as this goes to my email. I will try to reply immediately but I work with disabled people and sometimes that is not possible. I will reply as soon as I can. For anything really urgent please phone me.
A continental breakfast of : juice; cereal and yoghurt; toast and spreads is included in your room. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are also provided. Please let me know if you need top ups of anything.
At checkout, can you please hand me back the keys and if I am not here when you are leaving, please make sure the suite is locked, the heated towel rail is switched off and the key is left in the designated place.
NB: the front door doesn't automatically lock when you shut it!
It would also be great if you could send me a message to let me know when you have left.
